Happy New Year one and all.
My sweetie and I actually stayed up until 10pm last night - yeah, it was a late one for us. It only happened because sweet baby Pokey was sleeping on hubby's lap and he couldn't bring himself to disturb her. He's the champagne opener, so the festivities had to wait for her to wake up.
Yes, it's a tough life being a cat in this house. Pokey could probably give you a list of how we mistreat her. Not once was she allowed to have any biscotti. Now why would the kitty want biscotti, I have no idea but she does her best to steal them; managed a couple of times to heft a piece off the plate but was stopped before she actually got to eat any of her treasure -- the biscotti is too big for her to be able to run very far with it. She does her best to hoover up the crumbs off the plate tho.
Today I am determined to get my hubby to help me hang a couple of items on the wall. I don't have goals for the year, just for today. I also have to make jambalya since a friend is coming over for dinner. I made the stock yesterday which was a bit of a chore because somehow when we moved we didn't bring any stockpots. So I have to make smaller batches, one with the smoked ham hock, one with the chicken. Should be yummy.
Here's a quilt from the archives:
Dance in the Moonlight. Sing to the Stars.
I made this top in 6 and a half hours in October 2001. I was doing my very best to think positive, happy thoughts and probably reading way too much SARK. She writes colorful, happy books and you should take a look sometime if you've never seen her work. I think it's possible to overdose on her tho.
Anyway, this is not a quilt that I care for now, but I suppose I needed to get it out of my system. This pic is just of the top - a friend machine quilted it and of course I have no after photo... This is one of the quilts living in storage right now. Can't wait to get them all out.
